Happy Heart Day!

Happy Valentine's day, singles awareness day, heart day, love day, Cupid's day, bows and arrows day, yadda yadda yadda. Basically, I hope that today you focused on the things and people that you love :) A lot of people think that Valentine's Day shouldn't be a real holiday, but I heartily disagree. Yes, I fully understand that sense of dread for the day when overly affectionate couples will embrace on campus and girls will be carrying around bouquets of flowers for everyone to see (really guys, really? you couldn't just give them to her later?). But let's try to look past that. I view Valentine's Day as simply a celebration of love, a day to remind us to love a little bit harder. It doesn't have to be romantic love; in fact, I almost think it's better if it's not romantic. I love my family, my cats, my roommates, my friends, my classmates, my ward members, my cookies, my shoes, my dinner group, my blog readers... so many things! So on Valentine's Day, I honor all the things that I love. Cheers to a life full of love, whether it be romantic, platonic, deep, eternal, fleeting, reciprocated, or one-way... it's all peachy!

Me and my Valentine's Day cookies!

Nothing says "love" like a heart-shaped frosted sugar cookie.

In other news, I also cooked for my dinner group tonight. Whitney and I joined a group of 12 other students in our apartment and we take turns cooking for each other Monday-Thursday. So, we only have to cook dinner like once every 3 weeks... it's great. Tonight I cooked my mom's delicious chicken enchiladas! They turned out pretty good, if I say so myself. I'm always a little nervous to cook my mom's food because I feel like it will just never taste the way I know it should. But, I think I may have done it this time! They were cheesy and creamy and yummy. Hopefully everyone in my dinner group enjoyed them and the little Valentine's surprise I made them! (...the sugar cookies... not that exciting.)
